Walmart plans to add electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at thousands of stores across the U.S. by 2030. The retailer currently has 1,300 EV fast-charging stations at more than 280 locations. “With a store or club located within 10 miles of approximately 90 percent of Americans, we are uniquely positioned to deliver a convenient charging option that will help make EV ownership possible whether people live in rural, suburban or urban areas,” wrote Vishal Kapadia, senior vice president of energy transformation at Walmart. “Easy access to on-the-go charging is a game-changer for drivers who have been hesitant to purchase an EV.”
